Helpful Information about Treatments Offered in My Practices

Individual Adult Therapy

One on One sessions with therapist and patient. A safe and confidential space is provided so healing and change occur between therapist and patient. Self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior are explored.

The patient and therapist examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships and manifest themselves in the present.

My goal is to help patients become aware/conscious of and experience their feelings and thought processes and how this has led to maladaptive behavior. Work then is to devise and construct elements of change in patients thinking and behavior that can be implemented in the patient's life. In turn, patients can go on to live a more conscious, healthy, and vital life.

Play Therapy

Children express themselves through play.

Play therapy provides a safe environment for children to manage trauma and stress, learn effective coping strategies, and to remove obstacles to their development, modify behavior, develop problem solving skills and learn different ways of relating.

Social Skills Groups

For Children, Adolescents, and Adults, with social skills deficits, even those stemming from ADHD, ASD, Asperger’s or other unspecified causes are able to make tremendous progress. Because a social skills deficit is an on-going challenge, that needs to be addressed repeatedly it is helpful to begin early and be consistent.  Because a social skills deficit can stem from so many diverse causes careful selection is made in forming of each group. Factors taken into considerations are developmental level, gender and age.

Group is focused on peer-to-peer interaction. Designed to help children, adolescents and adults who are struggling with peer interaction. Goals include increasing competence in reading nonverbal signals of others, thinking about the perspective of others when interacting with peers, and giving and taking feedback from others. Establishing impulse control, anger regulation, gaining perspective on self, discovering peer expectations, developing conversations skills, practicing anxiety management, engaging in peer reaction, planning bullying, and navigating the rules and routines of school / work (in case of adult group), family and community.

The Benefit of Group Therapy with Children, Adolescents, and Adults

As an adjunct or by itself group therapy helps members work to express their own problems, ideas, feelings and reactions freely and honestly. Playing, drawing and pretending as well as talking are important ways of sharing feelings and problem resolution for children. Adolescents and adult groups rely primarily if not exclusive on verbal communication.

Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay is grounded in the psychology of C.G. Jung and was introduced by Swiss Jungian analyst Dora Kalff. Sandplay is hands on psychological work. It is a powerful therapeutic technique that facilitates the psyches natural capacity for healing. Sandplay is done adjunctively to talk therapy during the process of the therapeutic work.  A scene is made from figurines and objects placed in a box of sand. Sandplay is a form of therapy that gives the child, adolescent, or adult, the opportunity to portray rather than verbalize feelings and experiences often inaccessible/difficult to express in words.

Mindfulness

Integrated into treatment with children, adolescents and adults.  Used in Individual and Group therapy. Mindfulness catalyzes learning, growing and healing and transformation of an individuals view and understanding of oneself. Mindfulness aids in the healing of a distorted sense of self, ones relation to others, to events and the external environment. Mindfulness aids in addressing maladaptive habits, trauma, medical conditions, and psychiatric disorders. Mindfulness aims to achieve stability of mind and awareness and aid in the cessation of maladaptive emotions and cognitions. Also seen as a method of systematic mental training for reducing suffering and developing self-awareness, self-regulation and development of a positive relationship between self and others.
